Yesterday at GDC, Sony revealed a new launch date as well as the finalized pricing for the PlayStation VR. Delayed from summer into October of 2016, the PlayStation VR headset will now retail at $399/€399/£349.
What you will get in the box when you pick up the PlayStation VR is an HDMI cable, a USB cable, a pair of stereo headphones, the add-on processor box, an AC power cord, AC power brick and the PlayStation VR headset. What you don’t get is the PlayStation camera and the PlayStation Move controllers, which will be somewhat a requirement. Perhaps a more complete bundle will become available closer to launch, but with enough time between now and October, maybe you should go pick those up in the near future if you want to get the most out of PlayStation VR.

Speaking on the PlayStation Blog, PlayStation’s Andrew House said “Today more than 230 developers are building content for PlayStation VR, from smaller independent teams to larger studios at the industry’s top publishers. We expect to have more than 50 games available from launch in October 2016 until the end of the year. Of course, the full promise of PlayStation VR will continue to grow over time as talented developers create new experiences and new genres that wouldn’t be possible outside of VR.”
When launched, PlayStation fans can download The Playroom VR, created by Sony Japan, a free download. The Playroom VR will include six games that can be enjoyed with friends and family, and show off the power and functionality of the VR game space.
